I'd heard Paradox was bad but after seeing it...wow.
First of all, anyone who says it's bad is over-selling how worthy it is of viewing, probably just because the last shot IS in fact so stupid it makes you laugh at what is now the laziest expanded universe in movie history. It's just flat-out BORING. Script-wise, it's honestly on-par with a theoretical mash-up of two theoretical SyFy originals named "Horizon Event" and "Gravitation." Yeah, it's basically just a BORING version of Gravity via Event Horizon, with a few other "things are going wrong in space" movies sprinkled in. I really struggled to stay awake.
Characters make no sense, plot lines are half-developed, and some of the dialogue is so eye-rollingly bad I thought they'd tumble right out of my skull (and I honestly don't know what Daniel Bruhl was doing here; I usually like him but he was terrible in this).
As for the ending and the way this reconciles the previous films:
1.5/5. I've now seen two movies I expect to be on my bottom 5 of 2018, and they were both presented by Netflix....and we're only like 40 days into the year.
